The Difficulties of a NJ Garbage Truck Accident Claim Case

Behind most garbage trucks are corporations or state funded or bonded agencies – all powerful and resourceful entities. In accident cases, they are known to employ teams of insurance professionals and other relevant experts that specialize in weakening victims’ claims. It is highly recommended that you get professional legal assistance, unless you want to be at a great disadvantage. Not only can a reliable attorney help you fight against the claim-killing tactics commonly employed by insurance companies, but s/he can also help you navigate the intricate bureaucratic procedures involved in an insurance claim.

Factors Behind Garbage Truck Accidents

Garbage trucks have a lot of heft and are difficult to maneuver. This makes them potentially dangerous vehicles which require utmost caution and concentration to operate properly. Unfortunately, not all garbage companies and their employees adhere to their standard duty of care and people end up getting badly hurt, or worse, killed.

The most common contributing factors behind garbage accidents in New Jersey include the following:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted or inattentive driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Overloading of waste
  • Inadequate maintenance of vehicle
  • Failing to check before reversing or turning
  • Failing to address traffic signals

Depending on the circumstances of your crash, you may file a lawsuit against the truck driver, the trucking company and/or even the truck parts manufacturer. Consult with an New Jersey truck accident attorney to learn more.
